An attractive middle-aged woman floats like a butterfly begging passers that pase by for something. The camera follows her - in real-time- with minimal interruption.
At first I could not distinguish if this is a performance or life itself.
The Lutz Mommartz Film Archive is a collection of the film works of German film-maker Lutz Mommartz, considered to be one of the pioneers in the film genre known as the "other cinema". Mommartz was born in Erkelenz in 1934 and spent most of his life in Düsseldorf. He began making movies in 1967 and eventually became Professor of Film at the Kunstakademie Münster. He still lives and works in Germany, dividing his time between Düsseldorf and Berlin.
